Many important phenomena and processes in applied sciences, like financial market, in- surance, risk measure, populations dynamics, epidemiology are not known with complete certainty, due to the lack of the information and/or incertainty in the measurements, or vague concepts and principles, and so there is a dicult to take into account every aspect of the problem. If we allow to some randomness, we often obtain more realistic mathematical models of those phenomena and processes. Stochastic and G-stochastic analytics play a crucial role in this direction. This session aims to bring together scientists, reaserches and members of industry to discuss the applications of stochastic and G-stochastic analytics and to show their uses and useful- ness in applied sciences.

E-mail: vasek@utb.cz

In system, control, or process engineering, devices like PLC, IPC, microcontroller kits or intelligent computer boards with advanced operating systems constitute an integral part of manufacturing and industrial processes. Advances in the theory of informatics have not been fully implemented in process control design until recently. However, many complex technological processes such as nonlinear, delayed, non-minimum phase ones, multidimensional or hybrid ones are hardly controllable by conventional control methods. Therefore, advanced modern control strategies have been investigated to deal with those problems. These methodologies, however, requires the utilization of elements of optimization or artificial intelligence. From this perspective, both, theoretical and application, contributions combining the informatics and system (control) issues are useful and desirable and highly welcome for the special session.

A crucial role in the huge expansion of the healthcare data play the utilization of Internet of Things (IoT) and of wearable and mobile devices. However, there is a lack of integrated primary and secondary data from patients that would allow clinicians to make personalized treatment decisions. In addition, a significant gap remains between the delivery of stratified healthcare leading to personalization as current approaches often take a one-size-fits-all approach, while also ignoring the patient’s Quality of Life (QoL). The special session will focus on research and development efforts in the domain of eHealth and the introduction of emerging AI and Big Data solutions required to overcome these lacks, driven by the research outcomes in the framework of an EU funded project, iHelp [6].

In this context, the aim of this special session is to present research results on technologies, tools and methods that support the development, deployment, and operation of advanced AI and Big Data systems. The main topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Standardization, harmonization, and interoperability of healthcare data
- Integrated Health Records

In contrast to the conventional methods of hard computing which are based on symbolic logical reasoning and numerical modelling, soft computing deals with approximate reasoning and processes that give solutions to complex real-life problems, which cannot be modelled or is too difficult to be modelled mathematically. SC is a synthesis of several computing paradigms mainly including probabilistic reasoning, fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms. These paradigms are complementary to each other and can be used simultaneously for solving a given problem. Although soft computing appeared just during the 1980’s, its techniques are used nowadays successfully in many domestic, commercial and industrial applications becoming a major research object in automatic control engineering and having the potential to expand further in the forthcoming era of the fourth industrial revolution and the advanced Internet of Things. This session aims to bring together researchers, academicians and practitioners for discussion and exchange of ideas on the latest theoretical developments in this field as well as on the best practices for a wide range of applications. Papers dealing with case studies, experimental and theoretical works along with their application to real-life situations are of particular interest.

E-mail: a.mousaei@tabrizu.ac.ir

The primary objective of this Special Issue is to curate and disseminate the most recent research initiatives pertaining to the control of electric vehicles (EVs). It is widely acknowledged that cars account for a significant portion, specifically two-thirds, of global petroleum consumption, with passenger vehicles alone contributing to roughly half of this consumption. Consequently, the resultant environmental pollution arising from fuel usage and reliance on external energy sources has propelled extensive research endeavors and technological advancements in the quest to supplant traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) power generation and transmission systems with renewable and eco-friendly alternatives. Against this backdrop, the control of EVs assumes a pivotal and direct role in mitigating energy consumption and optimizing battery longevity. As such, developing and implementing optimal and innovative control methodologies remain at the vanguard of research priorities within this field, serving as a noteworthy stride towards attaining energy efficiency and sustainability objectives. It is within this overarching context that we endeavor to curate a collection of cutting-edge research and foster engaging discussions surrounding EV control strategies.
